What's On in Wellington

Your monthly guide to the hottest events in Wellington. Check out what's on the calendar of good times this September.

ACME from Sydney Pop Up at Rita

Cancel that trip to Sydney and book a flight to Wellington instead, as acclaimed Sydney restaurant, ACME, is doing a two night pop-up at our acclaimed Wellington restaurant, Rita. CME is known for their border-crossing cuisine that draws on Italian inspiration. This combined combined with their easy-going charm has made ACME a much-loved Sydney institution. 

Curious Creatures & Marvellous Monsters

This exhibition is made for kids and their whānau to explore the bizarre beasts in Te Papa’s art collection (and a few visiting creatures too). So come and discover why artists make these marvellous monsters. But beware – wicked goblins lurk within!

Modern Girls in Bed

Modern Girls is an irreverent comedy about sisters, strength, and what happens when two young women come face-to-face with five trailblazing wāhine from Aotearoa’s history. Shortlisted for the Adam NZ Play Award, this is a razor-sharp, poignant collision of historical heroines and present-day family politics. A perfect way to celebrate the 125th anniversary of women's suffrage in New Zealand. 

Chicago the Musical

"Murder, greed, corruption, exploitation, adultery and treachery... all those things we hold near and dear to our hearts..." So begins the international multi-award-winning musical, Chicago. Based on real life events back in the roaring 1920s, jazz slayer, Roxie Hart, shoots her lover and along with Cell Block rival, double-murderess, Velma Kelly, they fight to keep from death row with the help of smooth talking lawyer, Billy Flynn. 

Mrs Krishnan’s Party

Indian Ink Theatre Company continues to bridge cultures and push boundaries with this immersive ‘party-within-a-play’ that seats the audience around the table both figuratively and literally, and breaks the rules of theatre in an utterly disarming 75 minutes of comedic, odd couple drama.


World of WearableArt Awards Show 2018

Get ready to leave your world behind and enter a world where theatre and magic come to life. The World of WearableArt® Awards Show is New Zealand’s single largest theatrical production where incredible works of wearable art, created by designers from around the globe, are bought to life on stage. This year, WOW invites you to journey into the unimaginable, a place of reflection, dreams and wonder as they celebrate their 30th anniversary show.



In spite of her own conviction that "I shall not be 'fashionable' long", Katherine Mansfield’s writing continues to be read, loved and translated around the world. To celebrate the 130th birthday of our most famous literary export, Wellington is putting on a city-wide programme of events, exhibitions and performances.
